UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has been cast to play Batroc The Leaper in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which hits theaters April 2014. Much like St-Pierre's background, the villain Batroc is a French martial artist who specializes in kickboxing. Although this character has no superpowers, his motives are to take the superhero down. The first film in the franchise, Captain America: The First Avenger, grossed more than $368 million worldwide. This is not the fighter's first time as an actor as he has previously starred in straight-to-video films such as Never Surrender and Death Warrior, both released in 2009. ~Carlos Laron

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification
    appeared to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don't know about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as
    defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks
